Inside Voices at the Girl Aquarium (Paperback)
This fictional book is about six teenage girls who let their "inside voices" out and escape their troubled lives using a simple, but powerful weapon: their poetry. At a NYC writing workshop, their talk isn't about pedicures and designer bags. Instead, they meet each month in this "safe" place to express their real fears, pressures and joys. Here, Tamara from Harlem dreams of going to an Ivy League college. Adela from Queens proclaims her science project to "fix" the world and Lorna describes the rush of playing lead guitar in a rock band. Through writing and sharing their work, the girls deal with issues like peer pressure, family troubles and bullying. Join them as they share their poems for the first time in public and attempt to break out of the Girl Aquarium.
